qThe Universal self-instructor is nothing less than it pretends to be: an Epitome of Forms, especially adapted for purposes of self-instruction and general reference in the various departments of Education, Commerce, Law, Home, Society, and Amusements. Every young man and young woman ; every business man, farmer, and mechanic ; every housewife and lady of society ;--in fact every intelligent member of the community should have it within reach for consultation on those numerous minor matters that a well-educated person is supposed to know. The Reading Public has been amply supplied for years with reference books of every description, but the present volume may be said to occupy a field peculiarly its own, as the people have never before been furnished with a publication embracing in a single volume such a quantity of practical information, and treating the wants of every-day life in a lucid, instructive and agreeable manner. Such articles as Elocution, Penmanship, Book-keeping, Letter-writing, Mercantile Law, Music, Stenography, Phrenology, Agriculture, Social Etiquette, Out-door Sports, In-door Amusements, Physical Culture, The Domestic Circle, Household Receipts, Parliamentary Law, etc., have been prepared by writers of reputation and large experience in the special subjects given them for treatmentq--Preface.lac/Spears. a#39; a#39; .aquot;v- lg I v. a€œ.2;q \aquot;a-_.
